Craft brewery coming to Mason

A former marketing executive is planning a new craft brewery in Mason, the Enquirer reports.

Mike Burton and his business partner have been homebrewing for a long time and will use those skills to open 16 Lots Brewing at 753 Reading Road inside the former Mason Pub.

More below:

I hadn't even heard of this place:

It had begun as the Tom and Jerry's Sports bar, and was that for a long time until the new generation of owners got bored it seems and jumped into the brewing, taproom, bar building business. Hope it all works out for them, but it seems by far to be the more stressfull way to roll.

Recently visited the west side location and it was flat out awful. Only 5 of their 12 beers were available... until they blew a keg and then there were 4. Tried their pretzels w/beer cheese, both microwaved and delivered within 5 minutes of ordering them.

The westside location is closing temporarily, as the former owners have repurchased it (formerly known as Patrick's).  Hopefully they will return it to its former glory as it always used to be packed.

After a massive crowd on Saturday, MadTree had to stay closed on Sunday "to recover". Their post didn't explain why they had to close... and it must have been a pretty serious reason for them to forego what surely would have been another huge crowd on Sunday. Anybody know *why* they had to close on Sunday?

I think you're overthinking it. They sold 160 barrels of beer in two days. That takes them more than two days to actually brew (which doesn't include all of beer in cans and at bars around the tristate sold that day). I think their employees were exhausted and thought it would be better to not reopen on Sunday and get the house in order. Their official Winter Bonanza event wasn't planned for Sunday, so it would have been a normal day, though probably still really busy. Employees were probably just beat.

I'm surprised the temperance movement didn't outlaw the sale of public land or public buildings for alcohol-related purposes.  The no-bars-within-500-feet-of-a-church laws are still out there.

Look inside MadTree 2.0, the brewery's newly opened $18M expansion



It was just more than a year in the making, but MadTree's brand-new brewing facility and taproom is now open to the public and pouring beer.

MadTree moved from its former site at 5140 Kennedy Ave. to the old RockTenn Co. paper mill at 3301 Madison Road in Oakley. Click through the photos below for a look inside.

Distillery-brewery coming to Over-the-Rhine

http://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2016/06/02/distillery-brewery-coming-to-over-the-rhine.html

Historic Christian Moerlein icehouse to house new distillery and brewery



A building that was once part of the historic Christian Moerlein Brewing Co. complex in Over-the-Rhine will become home to a new craft brewery and distillery this summer.

The yet-to-be-named brewery and distillery will open inside the former Moerlein icehouse at 108 Henry St. by June or July, according to two of its co-founders, David Berger and Bryan Becker.

“This has been in planning for two years,” said Berger. “It’s sort of bringing the building back to what it used to be.”

OTR brewery-distillery to open this summer



An Over-the-Rhine brewery and distillery is set to open this summer.

According to a Miami University student working with the brewery on marketing, it will be called Northern Row Brewery and Distillery and open at 108 Henry St. by June or July of this year. The brewery and distillery's existence, then called Henry Street Brewery & Distillery, was first reported by the Courier last June.

Maybe not the most perfect location for this, but it was a nice shutout to Rhinegeist and the Brewery District and its role in revitilization:

What Should Cities Make?

There probably isn’t a city out there that wouldn’t like to be the next Silicon Valley. But cities will do better focusing on their distinctive assets and helping a manufacturing scene grow organically.

Take Cincinnati. In the mid-19th century, German immigrants settled in the city’s Over-the-Rhine neighborhood and started brewing lager and opening beer gardens.

Another Cincinnati brewery completely sells out of beer on its opening weekend



Don't ever accuse Cincinnatians of not being thirsty. Just a week after MadTree sold out of beer while celebrating the opening of its new brewery, another Cincinnati brewery is tapped out.

Brink Brewing Co. at 5905 Hamilton Ave. in College Hill opened to the public on Feb. 19. After two days in business, the brewery was completely out of beer. It's closed until Friday, March 3, while it brews more.

Van Winkle's oldest bourbon ever is coming, but it will cost you



A 25-year-old bottling of Old Rip Van Winkle bourbon is coming soon.

Buffalo Trace Distillery, which makes Old Rip Van Winkle, Pappy Van Winkle and other bourbons, will release 710 bottles of this product in April, according to a news release. This bourbon will be two years older than the hard-to-come-by Pappy Van Winkle 23-year-old bourbon that often gets bourbon fans' blood pumping.

Greater Cincinnati crowdfunded brewery ready to sell first suds



A Greater Cincinnati brewery, the first in the United States to qualify for crowdfunding under a new section of federal law, will sell its beer to the public for the first time this weekend.

Ludlow-based Bircus Brewing Co. will have five pilot styles of beer brewed in 5-gallon batches available 10 a.m.-5 p.m. March 18 as part of Shop Ludlow Day. The brewery and taproom are still under construction, so pouring will take place on the outdoor patio adjacent to the building at 326 Elm St.

^I was at an event a few weeks ago put on by the Cincinnati Chapter of the Congress for the New Urbanism talking about how breweries are catalysts for neighborhood redevelopment, and they were one of the speakers. They talked about the Kickstarter, and said it acted more as a vehicle to get people excited for the brewery, have a sense of ownership in the business, and get their name out there. I believe he stated that they netted under $30k for the Kickstarter after fees and merchandise items were purchased. They raised $71k on Kickstarter. They basically said the project would have happened without it, but they got to do a few extra things with the added money and it built hype for them. But I don't think you could call them a crowdfunded brewery in the sense that that's how they made it work.
